At least 20 people were shot, including one whose condition is critical, as security forces opened fire at protesters on Tuesday at Kale in northwestern Sagaing region, Myanmar. 

The police in Myanmar once again resorted to firing on peaceful protestors on Tuesday. 

Myanmar police chased away protestors after firing stun grenades and tear gas.  

Large numbers of anti-coup protesters take to the streets of Yangon every day despite the lethal force that has been used by the Myanmar military. 

Tuesday’s firing comes just 2 days after Myanmar witnessed its deadliest days since the Myanmar military staged a coup and seized power from the democratically-elected civilian Government on February 1. 

On February 28, over 20 peaceful protestors were killed and many sustained injuries after the police in Myanmar opened fire. 

As demonstrations in Myanmar gained momentum, security forces began a violent crackdown on protesters in towns and cities across the country.
